34 skydivers from 14 countries are going to make a record-breaking attempt to parachute over Mount Everest on Tuesday, October 2. The skydivers will be up over the peak at 29,035 feet and will freefall for one minute. Then they'll pull the cord and slowly glide down safely to the drop zone at 12,350 feet.
That looks like it will be extremely fun...on paper.
